Eight chronic vestibular deficient (VD) patients (bilateral N = 4, unilateral N = 4, ages 18-67 were exposed to an interaural centripetal acceleration of 1 G (resultant 45 degree roll tilt of 1.4 G) on a 0.8 meter radius centrifuge for up to 90 minutes in the dark. The patients sat with head fixed upright, except every 4 of 10 minutes when instructed to point their nose and eyes towards a visual target (switched on every 3 to 5 seconds at random places within plus or minus 30 deg) in the Earth horizontal plane. Eye movements, including directed saccades for subjective Earth-and head-referenced planes, were recorded before, during, and after centrifugation using electro-oculography. Postural sway was measured before and within ten minutes after centrifugation using a sway-referenced or earth-fixed support surface, and with or without a head movement sequence. The protocol was selected for each patient based on the most challenging condition in which the patient was able to maintain balance with eyes closed.
